    Godfrey's Bridge

    This part is pretty hilarious: Someone got a little overzealous with the copy and paste.

    Property Stones And More... Fall 2022/ Winter Spring 2023

    I tried futzing around with NCAT to see if I could get anywhere, but I am not doing something right. You can select NAD27 as the input datum in this tool though.

    Property Stones And More... Fall 2022/ Winter Spring 2023

    Fascinating! Thank you for the backstory. I figured the X and Y must correspond to someone's coordinate system. So are the State Plane markers all listed somewhere or shown on a map? Where did you find the map that shows X2940 Y2002 at Pleasant Mills? Is this a system that is still used for...

    Godfrey's Bridge

    I was over there yesterday. It really does not look to be in great shape. After I saw the condition of those supports I thought: "Should I really be driving back over this thing?"

    Property Stones And More... Fall 2022/ Winter Spring 2023

    I took a picture of this one yesterday - I'm sure it's well-known as it's in plain sight and right next to the Tom's Pond trail at Batsto, but I never really noticed it before. Reading these threads has me paying more attention to stones. Is this a property or survey marker, or something else?

    Hampton Gate Hotel

    If Boyd would just add those 1776 I/R aerials to his site we'd have this all figured out by now ;)

    Hampton Gate Hotel

    Found it while taking some other pictures nearby. It actually sort of looks like two different types of stone - is that just a natural inclusion?

    Fall on the Atsion Burn --- A PBX Trip

    I picked up a pair of Baffin Enduros this spring and have really enjoyed them, the build quality is great and they weren't expensive. Made in Canada. Only thing I wanted to change about them was the soles; I replaced the defaults with a set that has reinforced arch support. Now they're up to the...

    Structure Source for NJ Boyd Topo

    Yeah, it's not about the legality of what they're doing, I don't think there's any issue there; they could simply be nicer about it. Will check out that USGS link, thanks.

    I guess I might also ask, while we're on the subject: do you know the source of the photo sets they're offering for some of the layers at Historic Aerials? The 1940 one you mentioned, for example. They don't seem to cite what it is based on anywhere or provide any information. Some people asking...

    Why is your 2020 topo dark themed, anyway - just to distinguish it more from the 2017 version?

    Sawmill Locations

    I'll have to check out the nature center now that it's reopened. I was there a few times this year but it was always closed for the remodel. It's a great park, the trails are excellent.

    Franklin Parker Preserve

    I appreciate your posts and the information, but I was talking about the road to the east of this, not the road that leads right to the deer club. Mostly I would be interested in checking out the former bogs that are to the south of this area, along the road.

    Franklin Parker Preserve

    Tangential topic: what do we know about this (unnamed?) road? Looking at the map again, it is not part of the private parcels adjacent to it with the no trespassing signs. It does not pass through the Franklin Parker parcel we've been talking about, but interestingly, it does go all the way...
